I used NewzCrawler and switched recent to RSSOwl.
Some options will be useful for RSSOwl:
Auto collapse folder when leaving it
Mark all feeds as read only when switching channels, not when leaving enclosing folder
(Now, when collapsing other open folders, all channels in current folder are
marked as read, which is annoying)
Option 2: When clicking another top folder, all news in current
folder/subfolders are marked "read", including non visited feeds.
I am not English speaker, so I recorded 2 sessions (AVI format):
Option 3: I agree, this would confuse some users, but it can be implemented as
It would be useful because now when leaving feed all searched items are marked
as read, so you can lose some unread news.
sorry, your videos on megaupload.com are not available (for me)
I can see your problem here but its just a configuration thing. You have
configured RSSOwl to mark the news as read when switching feeds, you can
easily turn this off from the preferences. You can even turn it off just for
the folder but still enable it for inidividual feeds if you want.
In other words, what you see as behavior is not the default behavior.
Thank yow, I agree.
But to acquire the behavior I need I must configure each feed to mark "news as
read when switching feed". I have 200+ feeds, so in not so handy!
I still think that splitting this option in two: folder level behavior and
feed level behavior can be useful.
